SAG Predictions: Best Actor in a Supporting Role

Last year’s nominees: Robert Duvall (The Judge), Ethan Hawke (Boyhood), Edward Norton (Birdman), Mark Ruffalo (Foxcatcher), and J.K. Simmons (Whiplash)

The rundown: One nominee from last year should be back again: Mark Ruffalo (Spotlight), and he’ll probably be joined by another nominee from last year, his costar Michael Keaton (Spotlight), who was chosen as Best Actor by NYFCC. I’m not sold on who will join them just yet, but things are looking up for Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies) based on his performance and Tom Hardy (The Revenant) based on buzz for the film. If Sylvester Stallone (Creed) is really in the race, he may show up here, and SAG favorite Benicio Del Toro (Sicario) will also need a boost from this group. Idris Elba (Beasts of No Nation) is a possibility, as are Jacob Tremblay (Room) and Harvey Keitel (Youth), and I’m sure someone completely surprising to join the race.

Current predictions: Del Toro, Hardy, Keaton, Ruffalo, Rylance
